Windjammer on Honda Sabre
Hi Craig, I thought you might get a kick out of the picture attached.
Martie Mitchell's Sabre. A rare combination
I fashioned some new mounts that attach to the engine protection bars, and then some slanted braces that attach back down to the footpeg area. I had to cut about 1/2 inch around the front side of the inner "well" so as to have enough fork clearance. I reinforced the sides with 1"wide steel bar stock top and bottom and then put rubber mounts anywhere there was metal/bolt contact. It performs flawlessly. Ran it up to 80 mph yesterday and it is rock steady. She is soooooo happy, and wants to thank you for your beautiful design, It is timeless.
Details of his mount
If you know of anyone that wants to mount a Vetter on a modern cruiser feel free to give them my email address as I have lots of pictures. Thanks again.

A stunning photo from Germany
|Carol: My friend in Germany (Harald Renndorff) got the t-shirts from you today. He is very happy and thankful that he received the shirts. He attached a picture of his motorcycle and I am forwarding it to you. Thanks from me, too for helping us with this delivery. |
Greetings from Minnesota
Found your site and I couldnt be happier. I need to replace a few things on the Windjammer and you have made them available. I would like to replace the Windjammer decals on my 1980 Vetter fairing which is mounted on a 1980 Yamaha Midnight Special. I need the gold decals which are not available at this time. Any chance they will be available in the future?

|I just wanted to say how much I am impressed with the fairing I just mounted on my 80 gl1100. Its a WJ III, and I had to cobble it together from several different ones, but I was successful, and I love what it does for me. I mounted the original turn signals from the bike on the fairing since the original Vetters were toast. |
So, 30 years after it was made, its still appreciated.

Reader's favorite pics are vintage images of when we were young, our girlfriends were "sweet young things" and our dogs were pups. Thanks Craig.
